Quick Canvas Project

Hi everyone , Eunice here from The Little Things ! I hope your summer is starting off with lots of good things ! I was spending some time in my studio the other day & wanted to create a canvas collage to hang in a vacant spot !! A canvas on the smaller size 7 by 14 ! I painted the background and then added some houses using Glitz Papers , love there designs !! So I created a little village ( three homes ...size !! ) using mod podge to adhere to the canvas, I added smaller paper pieces for the doors & windows ect. and for some added detail I used the Edges Mini's , smaller size adorable paper edges , I love love these ! I have found so many uses for these adorable edges ! I sprayed mine with the Maya Road mists , it is a fabulous way to color something delicate like the Edges Mini's , quick , and also has a little glimmer in it for great detail !  To add more detail on the back ground I used Punchinella ( you HAVE to have that for wonderful collage work )    comes in various sizes and creates a wonderful detail for your art work ! I also added some "words" that I printed out , a stencil was used for the "sun" and chipboard letters for the HOME at the bottom ! Quick and super easy to create , check out the vast supplies for creating collage art on Altered Pages ! Have a wonderful and creative day !!


  1. I want to live in the polka dot house on the left! Nice work Eunice! I'm going to have to check out the edge minis.

  2. I might want to move into the striped one!!! These are adorable and very creative. The sentiment is lovely as well.

  3. Love the canvas. I thoroughly agree about punchinella, use it a lot, even have a piece or star punchinella which is my fave!

  4. LOVE IT! I too love the polka dot house... I LOVE punchinella but only have a couple want more and more and more and...well you get it!!! Awesome canvas!

  5. LOVE this!!! Too cute! I need to get some of that size canvas - looks like fun to work with!

The Gift Card Card

Robin here and today I have a project for you that is a fun way to give gift cards or cash.  

You will need two envelopes for this project.  One is what the post office calls the 6 1/4 Commercial envelope.  When I was growing up we just called it a letter envelope.  It's a smaller rectangle than the #10, being just 3 5/8" x 6 1/4".  The other is a standard A6.  I chose the A6 because it fits inside the letter envelope when it's folded in half and it's also large enough to hold a check or cash, as well as a gift card.

With the flap against the body of the envelope, fold it in half from side to side.  Cut the flap in half and trim the inside cuts at an angle so that they don't interfere with the fold or get bunched up. 

Decorate the flap side of your envelope.  This will be the inside of your card.  Fold the envelope again and decorate the side that will be the front of your card.

Cut a panel of card stock to fit inside the 6 1/4 Commercial (letter) envelope.  Att…

Pretty Little Trees of all colors

Make adorable ornaments or decor items.

YOU can make the most colorful trees to fit your style and home.  Surprise someone with a color coordinated gift too!
I did different techniques for dyeing the sisal trees from AlteredPages.  We have 3 inch and 4 inch sizes in natural cream color available.

# 1 Technique used simple food coloring.  Yep, just like dyeing Easter Eggs!

I used an empty glass jar filled with water and dropped about 4 to 5 of green food coloring in and stirred it well.   I then placed a tree in the water.  The sisal is just like jute, so it absorbs the color easily.   I allowed it to be submerged for a minute and took it out.  The first dipping was paler than I wanted, so back into the water!

I did the same with red food coloring and added blue to the green for an aqua, as above.   Depending on how many drops of color you add to the water and how long you leave them submerged will determine the intensity of color.  Pull them out of the water after 30 seconds and check for …
